Leading local law firm, Hillyer McKeown are advising local employers to prepare for absences during this Summer’s Olympic Games following advice issues by the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service.

The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service has begun publishing a range of guidance for businesses in the run-up to the Olympics in order to help prevent any negative impact to companies during this Summers event.

Employers have been advised to start preparing for; worker absence, poor work performance and work flexibility. Businesses have also been asked to look into finding out the responsibilities they have towards any members of staff who have signed up to do volunteer work at the games. It’s been suggested that Employers consider; having some ‘holiday’ guidelines put together and put in place a policy for booking leave, introducing a flexi-time initiative for the short period during the events and maybe even agreeing to let staff watch television at work during certain times.

Lindsey Kidd, Partner at Hillyer McKeown, said: “The Olympics is set to be a really exciting time in Britain this Summer and it is inevitable that workers will want to take time off and get ‘involved’. With this in mind it’s therefore essential that employers prepare for the period in order to ensure that their business does not suffer as a result. We’re already being asked for guidance by employers wanting to prepare their business to avoid any disruption."
